Empty Bowls


Empty Bowls 2018
You are invited to a community meal called Empty Bowls 2018 on Sunday, March 18th at the Missouri United Methodist Church, 204 S 9th Street, in the Church’s multipurpose room!

This event is FREE and open to all of Columbia. Join in a simple soup, bread, and water meal from 11-3pm to help raise awareness of hunger in our community and support the Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture’s local food philanthropy project, Planting for the Pantry.


Donations made to Planting for the Pantry ensure that fresh local food from the Urban Farm is distributed to local food pantries, as well as support CCUA’s garden education programming.

Plus! Everyone who donates at Empty Bowls can take home a hand-made bowl that was made and donated by students, volunteers and local artists at Access Arts and MUCK.

Many thanks to our food sponsor the Columbia Area Career Center Culinary Arts for the soup and Bleu Events for the bread!
